Napoli assistant coach Nicolo Frustalupi insists that the club will not be taking the challenge of Chelsea lightly, despite the recent sacking of manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Frustalupi will be in the dugout to take charge of Napoli on Wednesday due to coach Walter Mazzarri's suspension and, even though the Italian side have a 3-1 lead for the second leg of their Champions League last-16 match, the assistant knows that they cannot underestimate the wounded Blues.
"It will be a much more difficult and intense game than the first one. After the departure of a manager, players always feel sort of responsible and want to do something extra," Frustalupi told Il Corriere dello Sport.
"Every game is unique, and we are feeling comfortable. Chelsea are a team full of champions though and we know that they are very strong at home."
Napoli are favourites and go into the game on the back of a 6-3 win over Cagliari and Frustalupi is keen to continue their fine form into the quarter-finals.
"It would be a dream to qualify for the next round, but we have already done a great job in the Champions League," he added. "Nobody counted on us to make it this far."
